    While you are “troubleshooting” touch the CPU heat sink (the big block of
    metal directly under your CPU fan) and see if it is real hot. Usually if
    you can hold your finger there for 5-10 seconds comfortably, its all good,
    but if it is hot enough to want to pull your finger away, then the heat
    problem is with your CPU. Again can of air is your fix. These are things to
    look for BEFORE the part actually breaks saving you some money.

    I do this for a couple reasons. Main reason is the system runs cooler. It
    will become “dirty and dusty” faster than a closed case but hey, can of air
    fixes that quite easily. Another reason is, when i notice the “signs” of
    heat i can reach in and (“WARNING” as Eli explained in his “don’t be an
    idiot speech”) touch the fan to see if the fan is actually working and/or
    turning with just enough force to “look” like its working.

    About video. From my experience, usually the 1st thing to go in a system is
    indeed the graphics card fan. If you catch it early enough, you can save
    your card before it “burns out.” One of the things to look for, is
    “graphics lag” that normally does not happen. If you are in a game and the
    graphics become real jumpy, way more than normal, grab that can of air and
    check your fans. Heat is the #1 enemy of a system. Myself, I run my systems
    with NO sides.

    PLEASE HELP ME!!! Sometimes, not always, when i am watching you tube my
    mouse stuffs with either the sound or the video. If i take the mouse off of
    the actual video and move it left to right and back across the screen, it
    either changes the sound level up and down or skips through the video
    depending where on my screen i move the mouse. It is driving me nuts and i
    am soooo bad with computers its not funny. If someone could explain how to
    fix this i would really appreciate it. Thanks guys.

    Good video. A couple things that you forgot to mention: 1) The power
    supplies AC cord can be damaged. 2) Same thing with the monitor AC cord. OR
    the monitors VGA/DVI cord is damaged. 3) Check to make sure all connections
    to motherboard are firmly connected (IE: the 2 pin power switch), Also
    check to make sure none of the pins are bent / broken on the
    motherboard/connectors. 4) RTFM (Read the Freaking Manual) for example if
    wanting to know which key to hit for BIOS; read the motherboard manual.

    Do you have any videos on how to diagnose a computer that turns on but it
    doesn’t post, no beep and display?

    I had a problem that sounds similar to this with a Windows XP computer
    tower a few years ago and the way I fixed it was by taking the whole system
    apart and cleaned all of the hardware (it was pretty dusty) but it didn’t
    work so I ended up buying a new ram card and it worked perfectly I don’t
    know if it will work but it’s worth a shot
